In 2012, in Norway, Anders Behring Breivik was convicted of mass murder, causing a fatal explosion, and terrorism. In the same year in nearby Sweden notorious racist serial killer, Peter Mangs, was sentenced to life for two murders, a series of attempted murders and scores of shootings in Malmo between 2003 and 2010. What has led to these murderous hate crimes in such highly developed and civilized countries? This book is based on a series of exclusive interviews with Peter Mangs, Anders Breivik and other perpetrators and instigators of hate crime as well as fieldwork among Muslims and anti-Muslims in Scandinavia and the USA, as well as more than a hundred interviews with hate crime targets, and an in-depth analysis of anti-Muslim propaganda material. It investigates hate crime in relation to anti-Muslim sentiments in public opinion and the growth of anti-Muslim social movements, political parties and online forums. It will be essential reading for all those with an interest in extremism, racism, terrorism and political violence.show more
